Great poetry and commentary from Shelby Courtland!
Not one American was gassed
And so America bombed Syria because..
Well, these things just should not be done.
After all, there are international laws.
What applies to America is unique.
There are none so exceptional as we
who were not gassed by no terrorists we trained,
but we still bombed a foreign country.
Some things just make no sense at all.
America refused Syria’s refugees
who were escaping a war torn land
brought on by our own tragedies.
Now let’s turn this all around.
Did America not gas the Iraqis?
And it was okay when we gassed the Vietnamese
and then say, “We are better than the Nazis.”
Tell that to the dead Vietnamese.
Or have you forgotten all about Napalm?
Our selective amnesia is telling
when we can forget about a Napalm bomb.
White phosphorous, the Iraqis will never forget.
How can they when we are still there?
